Here in Sweden we eat something called a “semla” (cream bun). Earlier we ate it at the Fettisdagen(Fat Tuesday), (Sunday before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent). It is like "Shrove Tuesday" that they have in England and USA and many other English spoken countries. In France they call the day Mardi Gras.

Nowadays when the Swedish people don’t fast before Easter the cream bun is available soon after Christmas and until Easter. The day to eat ”semla” this year occurs on the 24th of February. But I had my ”semla” today and it was so yummy!
